Carl Sandburg - Blue Ridge

BORN a million years ago you stay here a million years …
watching the women come and live and be laid away …
you and they thin-gray thin-dusk lovely.
So it goes: either the early morning lights are lovely or the early morning star.
I am glad I have seen racehorses, women, mountains.

AN EVER AFTER (for my father)I cnoant write this poemI know wordsBut not the ones that have meLoosening my grip, my holdOn your sweet soulI cnoant write this poemThe one that sees an end to youThat comprehendsA world withoutAn ever after youThe words I cnoant findThat find me nonethelessThat even seek me outTo say I’ll live withoutThe thing I am, have beenInside your heartThe girl who meantthe world to you—If the sun, you wrote so long ago, stops shiningI’ll see it in your eyes—The little scrapI’ll keep until my end of daysUntil the time I will let goOf wordsFor things I used to knowEntirely and not at all

A poem about born blue .
born blue is just like you ben born in the sky
that is light blue and some of the world of the book can express your self in the book of born blue.
